Find out what they messed with. Check how long it takes you to fix it,
then bill them, so that they learn how to take responsibility and act
professionally next time.

Somebody deleted a library that mysqld is linked to. Looks like a C
library (maybe libc.so.5).

As root type #history, to find out what they did. 
Print it out as proof.

To find out the missing library:

#ldd /usr/local/bin/my_print_defaults

To restore it you can either build it from source, or the iso.
